  • 2. The Daily 18- minute Plan5 min: When you wake up, make today’s to-dolist (keeping your annual plan in mind) andschedule the tasks on your calendar my tweak: give a start date to tasks and filter-out tasks that start in the future1 min every hr: Set a beep to remind you topause, reflect on how the hour went, relaxthe mood, plan the next hr5min: At the end of day, check how the daywent, act on any small but key items missed
  • 3. PausePause for a few seconds before amajor action or if things are goingtoo fast around youE.g., compose emails in offline mode;or use gmail’s 5-second undo feature
  • 4. Don’t switch tasksThings get done better, quicker, andwith less stress if we FOCUS on onething at a time no emails while on conf call no blackberry at lunch meeting
